Brain dead is not dead

It is truly a deceit of the devil to suggest that a person who is in a sleep is dead. It is habitual to men to look for the excuse for sin and it is truly the mark of the demon when we can justify it as if we are being merciful.

The Blessed Trinity though always gives us cause for hope. God shall always hear the prayers of his faithful when they call on him!

A woman who was diagnosed as being brain dead has recovered three days after her husband begged doctors to put in a breathing tube before switching off a ventilator at an Australian hospital, the Northern Territory News reported Wednesday.

When a doctor recommended that the ventilator be removed and Gloria Cruz be allowed to die, her husband told them, "I'm a Catholic -- I believe in miracles"

A doctor described her recovery as "a miracle."

Mrs Cruz is now alert and getting around in a wheelchair at the hospital. [1]
